Kingston has launched “world’s largest capacity flash drive” – the DataTraveler Ultimate GT (Generation Terabyte) at CES 2017.The new flash drive offers up to 2TB of storage and has a zinc-alloy metal body to provide resistance to shock.Measuring at just 72x 26.9 x 21mm, the DataTraveler Ultimate GT can hold up to 70 hours of 4K UHD-resolution videos, according to the company.
The DataTraveler Ultimate GT will be offered in two variants – 1TB or 2TB.It uses a USB 3.1 adapter, not USB-C, so you’re going to need a dongle to use it with some newer laptops.

Commenting on the launch, Jean Wong, Business Manager at Kingston, said,
With the DataTraveler Ultimate GT, we empower users to increase their data storage mobility in a highly manageable form factor. This is a terrific follow up to our 1TB drive released in 2013 and by doubling the capacity, users can store and carry even larger amounts of data easily,
No pricing information has been revealed yet but considering the fact that it is the world’s highest-capacity flash drive, we don’t expect either model to be cheap.
